How 2021 was celebrated around the world
Countries around the world have welcomed 2021 with fireworks, but crowds were only allowed at some displays.
Restrictions were placed on new year festivities as many countries struggle to curb new spikes in coronavirus cases.
Strict lockdown and border closures in New Zealand have all but eliminated Covid, so New Year’s Eve plans were held as usual.
The Sydney fireworks display went ahead, but crowds weren’t allowed to gather on the city’s harbour to enjoy it.
